Even though he clearly can't be a year old already, Ellison celebrated his first birthday today. Hooray! There was cake, and loot, and wrapping paper, and all sorts of happy fun stuff.

Check out the flickr photo set to see the rest!

I've submitted a photo to JPG Magazine's upcoming issue in the 'Embrace the Blur' category. If I win, I'll get published (it's a flesh-and-blood magazine as well as a web site), a crisp $100, and a supercool Lensbaby lens. I want all of these things very, very badly.



What can you do to facilitate this, you ask? Well, I will tell you!



  1. Follow this link to my picture at JPG Magazine

  2. Sign up for an account (they won't let you vote without one)

  3. Vote for me!

  4. (Optional) Click around and check out the other submissions





If I win, I will give you a shiny pony. Or at least a shiny nickel.

Want to know how many pictures we took while we were in Santa Cruz? No, you don't. Seriously. I uploaded 222 to Flickr, and let's just say that was the tip of the metaphorical iceburg.

Howevah! Those of you who are waiting with bated breath for photographic evidence of our trip: the wait is over. Behold:


There are more, of course, in our Flickr account, but make sure you're logged in! A bunch of them aren't visibly to the prying eyes of the general public. We've got to maintain our exclusivity, after all. (If you're not signed up for Flickr or, god forbid, we haven't added you to our contact list yet, send an e-mail to iwearthecheese (at) neumanbeck (dot) com and I will hook you up, yo.)

People have been asking me for gift recs for the kid. I hear he's going to be a year old soon. You know what I say to that? LALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU. I spent the afternoon adding things to his wishlist on Amazon, as all the stuff I had on there before was a) outdated and b) out of stock, since Amazon broke up with Babies R Us and cut all their faces out of the holiday pictures. I also added a thing or two to Ellison's page on our wiki. Either of those things will give you excellent gift ideas for the short person, but only one updates automatically so if you do get him something, please let me know!

I so need a break today.

Also? I think we might have to get rid of one of our cats.

Today's the first drizzly day in many months, and we're lucky to have gotten all our errands done yesterday so we can fully appreciate it. What's better than a rainy Sunday? Nothing, that's what.











We went out to Toys R Us yesterday and got Ellison the toy of his choice. Which was a broom. Seriously. He's barely put it down since. Now if we can just teach him how to mop...








The kid's well on his way to starting his own boy band: just look at the dance stylings he's managed already! Once he discovers choreography, he'll be unstoppable.

The kid? He is funny. His daddy is funny, too. Just a funny family, that's us.

Ellison has conquered the couch. Can Denmark be far behind?
